Re: Mayor on the ballot rare in View Royal, News, Nov. 11, 2011
As a member of View Royal Council I take exception to Andrew Briton’s irresponsible statement in the Gazette that the Town of View Royal was somehow to blame for the Thetis Cove developer going bankrupt.
Britton suggested that it was delays by the Town in processing the application that caused the bankruptcy.
I am sure there were many factors involved with that proposal not moving forward (such as the global economic meltdown), but to suggest that the Town should not hold all developers to high standards and regulations is surely a recipe for disaster.
